Spotlight: Lofts at Navicent

This week, Live at Lofts is excited to offer the third installment of our series on our market rate properties with the Lofts at Navicent! 

 

Construction started on this beautiful property in November 2015 and it was completed in April 2017. Not only did the Lofts at Navicent bring 60 luxury lofts to the heart of the medical epicenter of Macon, but through a wonderful partnership with Navicent Health, we are excited to offer a state of the art fitness center to Navicent employees as well as our wonderful residents. Navicent Health also occupies the second floor of our building with their Employee Health Center, with three floors of luxury lofts located above. Alex Putnam, our community manager at the Lofts at Navicent, knows that she has a strong bias but says that this property is her favorite across our brand! Alex says that she loves being able to provide a luxurious haven for her resident to come home to each night after a long day at work. Email alex.putnam@liveatlofts.com or call 478.336.5229 to set up a tour!

Student to Professional - The Lofts has You Covered

Live at Lofts properties offer access to modern loft living in the heart of Macon’s most happening areas. The Live at Lofts brand strives to provide a community that no matter your stage of life, there is certainly a property that fits your needs. We have partnered with Mercer University to offer multiple student housing properties such as, Lofts at Mercer Village, Lofts at Tattnall, and Lofts at Mercer Landing. In addition to this, we have several market rate communities that are ideal for young business professionals and empty nesters such as, Lofts at Bass, Lofts at Navicent, Lofts at Capricorn, and our newest development the Lofts at Zebulon.

When leasing at one of our student housing properties, it is our mission to ensure the best possible living experience during their college career. It is our hope that upon graduation, these students will love Macon, GA just as much as we all do and find a career here in Middle Georgia. Upon securing a position, the individual will then phase into one of our market rate properties. Brittany Onyeji is a Mercer University graduate who is now a practicing pharmacist at Navicent Health, Middle Georgia’s premier medical community. Brittany is the perfect example of the "Loft Transition" as she went from the Lofts at Mercer Village to now living at the Lofts at Navicent. Below is an interview with Brittany herself about her college career, her time at the lofts, and so much more!

·       What college did you attend for your undergraduate program?

o   Mercer University College of Liberal Arts  

·       What degree did you obtain there? Did you continue your schooling elsewhere after graduation?

o   Biochemistry and Molecular biology degree

o   I continued on to Mercer University College of Pharmacy in ATL.

·       Where did you live during your undergraduate program?

o   I lived on campus for the first few years. Once the lofts opened I was literally the first resident (along with my roommate).

·       What did you like most about living there?

o   I loved having full-sized beds, fully furnished units, washer and dryer, nice appliances, modern study rooms, security, and no curfew restrictions.

·       Why did you move out of the area? Why did you move back to Macon?

o   I moved out of the area to attend Mercer Atlanta for pharmacy school. I accepted a position here as a pharmacist at Navicent Health.

·       What drew you back to the Lofts brand when you moved back to Macon, GA?

o   I was familiar with the brand having lived at one of their properties previously. I was pleased with the unit, amenities, proximity to work, price point, ease of move, and staff. These units are like a piece of “Atlanta”. I feel closer to home even though I am away. The upgrades in these lofts are unlike others that I have seen at other complexes throughout Macon. I also love paying only one bill monthly. It was a no-brainer for me.

·       If you had to describe the Lofts in one word, what would it be?

o   Upscale

The Growth and Blooming of Downtown Macon, Part Two - Parking

Cherry Street

Cherry Street

Moving forward with our theme of Downtown growth and progress, a question on everyone’s mind is parking. With new businesses, restaurants and residential developments moving into the downtown core, the need for on-street parking is only going to grow. 

In November 2016, Macon-Bibb County Commissioners approved a new downtown parking plan that allows Macon’s Urban Development Authority to fund the addition of parking meters, pay stations and other parking management systems to Macon’s downtown core – the area between Walnut and Poplar and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and First Street. The downtown core contains 1260 parking spaces, and according to Alex Morrison, the Executive Director for the Urban Development Authority, around 850 meters should be installed by the end of this month. 

According to a March 2018 article by Linda Morris of the Macon Telegraph, paid parking will be enforced Monday – Saturday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and will cost $1.25 an hour. These parking meters are anticipated to generate $1 million annually, which will support the parking system itself, and then any extra revenue will be put back into downtown through accessibility and parking improvements. Bibb Urban Development has contracted with Lanier Parking Meter Services to install and manage parking meters and the authority’s parking decks downtown. The bright side to this new parking system downtown is that there will be a higher turnover of available spaces because of the two-hour parking limit, meaning more opportunities for people to park downtown and enjoy all Macon has to offer. 

The great thing about living at a Lofts property is the gated, access-controlled entry parking! At Lofts at Capricorn and Lofts at Navicent, residents have guaranteed parking spaces. Both properties are located downtown, meaning an evening stroll down a block or two leads you directly to a wide selection of restaurants, bars, and theaters! You could even grab your morning coffee just one block from Lofts at Capricorn at Taste and See! 

Living downtown definitely has its perks, but with downtown growth booming and new parking regulations starting, the idea of guaranteed parking presents an easy choice -

Live it, Love it, Loft it! Life just got better at the Lofts!
